• COMMENTARY: Racists Sink to a New Low

    When NBC pre-empted Sunday Night Football to broadcast President Barack Obama’s heartfelt address to nation about the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, racists quickly took to Twitter.

    “Take that n****r off the tv, we wanna watch football!” one bigot tweeted.

    “Obama you stupid sand n****r get off my tv,” another racist complained. “Your just making the families hurt and miss their kids more and I want to watch football.”

    “Damn n*****r takes up my football time,” an idiot commented.

    “This n****r interrupted football game,” added one more Obama hater.

    I think you get the point.

    There were dozens of similar ugly racial comments streaming through Twitter and over the Internet on Sunday from bigots who were totally unsympathetic to the families who lost 20 children and six adults when an insane gunman, Adam Lanza, opened fire inside an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut last week.

    At a time when most Americans came together to support the residents of Newtown, there were racists who represented the darkest side of humanity. How can so many people be so callous in the wake of an unspeakable tragedy?

    These racists didn’t vote for Obama in November and they never wanted to see a black man in the White House anyway. But Monday’s collective racial tirade took on a decidedly different tone than the usual run-of-the-mill racial hatred.

    This was even more despicable because these racists would rather blame Obama for pre-empting a few minutes of the 49ers-Patriots game instead of standing with those families who were mourning their loved ones.

    “Whatever measure of comfort we can provide, we will provide,” Obama told a solemn audience in Newtown Sunday night.

    “Whatever portion of sadness we can share with you to ease this heavy load, we will gladly bear,” the president told them. “Newtown, you are not alone.”
